Plot Outline:

In a dark future, Thomas finds himself on an elevator, remembering nothing but his own name. He soon finds himself in "The Glade", a community of about 60 other young men - who have learned to survive in this enclosure while trying to find a means of escape. Every 30 days a new boy arrives - and they fight not only for survival, but also against the Grievers - creatures who plague the community. Their world is changed forever when the next arrival is comatose girl with a note. -- Chris Kavan

Maybe if I had read the book I would have gotten more out of this. As it was, it seemed like a weaker effort in the whole young adult post-apocalyptic genre of films that is becoming ever more popular. The film left more questions than it answered and just felt disjointed and not as interesting as the likes of The Hunger Games or even Divergent. I will check out the sequel, but I'm hoping it picks up (and explains a bit more) the next time around.

The storyline held my attention for the whole time without requiring much thought. Another reviewer accurately observed that this movie is like a mash up of "The Hunger Games" and "Lord of the Flies".

An exciting and successful teen adventure



Thomas: "We get out now or we die trying."
Minho: "You don't get it. We're already dead."

"The Maze Runner" is just like its predecessors "Twilight", "The Giver","Divergent" and "The Hunger Games" an adaptation of a book. The same ingredients are present as in the above-mentioned films : a post-apocalyptic world where young people play a key role. A world where society is organized in a new democratic or non-democratic way. In "The Giver" human feelings were suppressed in order to ensure a peaceful existence and people are divided into so-called "factions". In "The Hunger Games" there are districts with the Capitol as an overarching body that organizes the Hunger Games annually. Als...

Better than the hunger games. creatures and teens

Another movie that has that hunger games kind of theme. its about a community of teens who have been sent to this maze one by one over time and have no memory of their past lives all they remember is their names. they cant escape as the only way out is through the forever changing maze which is guarded by creatures that hunt them., all changes when thomas turns up and refuses to give up finding a way out.
i really enjoyed this. when it ends it makes you want to watch the 2nd one just to see what happens next. also unlike the hunger games and others where no one actually dies or rarely . this movie is much more real where people die and theres a real threat with the creatures .and also there's no silly romance , though a girl does turn up and i'm sure the romance will start in the sequ...

"Temple Run Movie"

The plot is good in general, but the substance lacks that viewers would look for something more than just a group of people trapped in a place not knowing what to do next but run in a dangerous and fatal huge maze. I also thought that the film has no focus. Things are half-baked, more questions than answers even on its conclusion. In the end, as if it did not give anything to the viewers but the things they've already seen in its trailer. How they managed to survive? Where do they get their food? Is it all just a social-scientific experiment? To what? What they want to happen in the end? These are questions I had on my mind while watching it in a cinema sitting beside a friend who called this film as a "Temple Run Movie" Lastly, we complained a lot on the dark visuals especially...

No Ladders?

Ladders. Ladders are a aeries of ancient and ingenious tools that have existed for hundreds and hundreds of years. They are a simple and efficient means of getting from a place of lower altitude to one of higher altitude with little effort. They are not as easy to use as elevators, but they are quite handy in scenarios where only a small distance needs to be climbed, or when an elevator is not readily available.

Ladders are the first things I thought of when I saw the trailers for The Maze Runner, and I spent the entire duration of the film waiting for them to make an appearance. Their awaited appearance, unfortunately, never arrived. The Maze Runner maze has no ceiling, it only looks like itís a few stories high. The mazeís residence themselves have been trapped within its confi...
